I know there is a thread about how much sleep you need, but this is my rant because I can't sleep. At the moment thats because my bf has flu, and he keeps coughing and spluttering which wakes me up... normally its my own fault I can't sleep, and now I feel like I could do with a week off, just to catch up with sleep. unfortunately thats not possible.. ](*,)

Sorry to hear of your situation.
I have the opposite problem - I have the flu, and im sleeping incredibly well, but I dunno if its the medicine im taking for the flu or what but since I started taking it i've had some pretty scary and violent dreams. Last nights was crazy. :o :o :o :o :o

Could be that you're running a temperature, Captain.

Wouldnt I feel hot though? Generally I dont feel hot and dont wake up sweating.

Sorry for hijacking the post Skarlet. I hope you manage to get some sleep soon.

Skarlet just try to remember it is a temporary problem and will soon be over
Hope you get some better sleep tonight

Captain your core temp could be up and not showing on the outside. I would check it to be sure. Make sure you're not overdosing on the medicine either. It could well be medicine giving you the funny dreams, especially the stromnger night time ones

Its a cough syrup that I got from asda. I only take it about 3 times a day - would that be regarded as over doing it?
Thanks for the info regarding core temperature. I'll have to look into that.

Sounds reasonable captain, however are you taking recomended dose as per bottle
If yes then maybe it's just a symptom of the illness
